Gone with the Wind, one of the most beloved and revered of American classics, showcases the best and worst of old Hollywood.

The film's subtle racism is insidious, going to great lengths to enshrine the myth that the Civil War wasn't fought over slavery - an institution the film unabashedly romanticizes.

Gone With the Wind endures and deepens with the passing of time because Scarlett and Rhett are as modern as its open ending.

Brimming with colour and passion, it pulls its emotional kick from tremendous performances, not least from Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable as the love-hate lovers.
